Tip Top Meats-Carlsbad/Anything in L.A. like it?

Plans for Saturday were driving to San Diego for the annual Chicano Park festival.....

My boss mentioned an incredibly good meat-market/deli/restaurant somewhere down the 5 Fwy around Legoland that I should check out - he could'nt remember the name or the exit though...........

I searched around on the California board and found Tip Top Meats in Carlsbad....
He confirmed that this was the name.....

Stopped in early Saturday for a look-see...
Wow! is all I can say about the place.....
Meat counter/full-service deli, Old world style European market and restaurant that cooks up the markets' goods.....

Decided on the deli counter and had a sub with ham, turkey, roast beef and pepperoni that was very fine....the pepperoni gave it a slight spiciness that went well with the other meats and trimmings....

Spent the night in S.D. Saturday - drove back early Sunday and stopped in.......
Picked up Portugese & Polish sausage, German weiners, double-smoked slab bacon and a couple buffalo steaks.....

Had a 'Q Sunday with the polish sausage, weiners and the buffalo steaks.....mmmmmmmmmmmm - meat debauchery..........

All items went well with the Laker and Dodger wins.....

So any suggestions from L.A. Hounds that are familiar with Tip-Top for a comparable place in the general L.A. area?
